ColourQ108 & CPS241


Happy Tuesday! Happy ColourQ day! Here’s the palette we have to work with today:


I had done a Halloween project using these spooky colors, but I changed my mind and ending up making a baby card!!! Here you go:


It felt a bit odd using black ribbon on a baby card, but I think the contrast was nice! I did some paper-piercing of my little chicks, and the embossed polka dots and buttons echoed the design of the DP.


I used this week’s Card Positioning System sketch as well:


And here’s a peek at the inside:


Thanks for visiting! I hope you will play along with these fun colors---a great chance to finish up those last-minute Halloween cards! Be sure to visit the CQC blog to see what the others came up with using these colors, and share your creation with us as well!

Pumpkin is getting a little more used to Cassidy as she learns to be “gentle”:



And even tries to “kiss” her:


Oops….Pumpkin is not quite ready for that—she’s gone!

Cute card- love the take on the sketch! And Pumpkin is a VERY patient cat. One of our cats now tolerates our 4yr old son to touch her if she's with my husband or I. Our other cat still glares at him as if to say, "When are you going back to where ever it is you came from - leave!"

Thanks for always sharing with us.

Totally cute card! Love how you used the colours. Love those green eyes Pumpkin has and good for him for being more patient with a toddler. Our cat could relate LOL!

Leanne, I love this color combo and I love what you did with it and I hope I'm retired when I get grandkids so I can take care of them and have wonderful pictures like you get to take! Love her with the cat! What a beautiful, sweet and gentle little girl!
